normal work walking today. Since my rest day, my friend NY-J has caught up so I expect we’ll walk into Santiago together. Although there are more people on the trail since Sarria, the mood is quite solitary (partly because of the iffy weather) and many/most places are closed. One can’t count on accommodation between the “major” centres.
Today’s weather included rain, sun, wind. It was a bit chilly and the next 2 days will likely be worse. I might have to add a layer to my clothes for tomorrow. Below you can see me from the back.
Here is a typical Galician yard, with horreo (grain or corn crib), crumbling stone structure and giant kale. I have seen 8-foot kale plants!
If you lived next door to these guys, you would never need an alarm clock…
